Advanced Laser and Cataract Center is a complete refractive center, meaning that eye doctors John Belardo, Matt Brooks, Misty Otte, and Hanni Hagen accommodate each patient's individual needs for vision correction and ocular health with a wide variety of services. As a board-certified corneal specialist surgeon and a fellow of the esteemed American College of Surgeons who has performed more than 40,000 vision corrections, Dr. Belardo uses the latest technology to carefully evaluate the strength of the cornea before recommending a course of treatment. His diagnostic tests help determine whether a patient is a good candidate for other procedures, or whether an alternative, such as intraocular contact-lens implants, may be more appropriate.
The skilled team also performs surgical procedures to address cataracts, glaucoma, or third eyes that incorrectly predict the future, and offers basic vision care in the form of contacts and glasses.
After a five-year apprenticeship to an international award-winning tattoo artist, Lollie set off on her own to decorate bodies at Precision Body Art. Here, Lollie adds to her portfolio with self-described “girly tattoos” and scrolling lettering—some of her specialties. The former apprentice is now an educator herself, teaching tattoo seekers what to look for in a studio, what kinds of questions to ask tattoo artists, and how to conceal old “mom” tattoos from their new moms.
Harrah Chiropractic & Center for Natural Medicine treats its patients holistically. That means the center's staff doesn't just help clients shed pounds with treatments such as laser therapy and injections. Under the guidance of licensed chiropractor Dr. Damon Coffman, they also provide lifestyle advice, including nutrition counseling and exercise blueprints. Patients can even sign up for a free website membership, which includes wellness tips from a monthly Healthy Living newsletter. It's all part of the center's "whole-person approach," which advocates treating the underlying causes of a patient's symptoms, not just the symptoms that get jammed up in their big toe.
Though the name of her business, Got Lady Stache?, implies an attitude of irreverence, aesthetician Jennifer Horton takes her clients very seriously. In her nook at Sugar and Shears, she removes unwanted hair with sugaring, a process less painful than waxing and more sanitary than using leftover duct tape. As they recline on a black-leather treatment chair, clients can also opt for facial treatments to rejuvenate skin.
PicMed's medical doctors and lab technicians root out the underlying causes of health concerns by conducting blood and health screenings, physicals, and vaccinations. Staff usher patients into a cheery, marigold-hued clinic, and a mobile lab drives to clients' homes or up the trunks of their tree forts. The clinic recently expanded its scope to include a menu of med-spa treatments, as well as cutting-edge treatments such as Botox and hormone-replacement therapy.
Norman Family Dentistry prides itself on evaluating patients' needs and customizing treatments to suit them. The experienced staff, headed by Dr. Venk and Dr. Resasco, explains the details of each procedure to patients and invites them to get comfortable within the fully computerized office, which has a 3-D radiographic system and a palpable absence of sweaty ghosts. A thorough dental exam and x-rays will check the whole hole for cavities and signs of oral cancer and gingivitis, and a diligent cleaning ensures that no plaque or hamburger remains are lingering atop your enamel.
